Benchmark indices opened marginally lower following negative global cues ahead of October F&O expiry scheduled later in the day. 

The markets, on Wedensday, ended at fresh highs with settling above 10,300 for the first time ever and above 33,000 following a mega recapitalisation package for banks and a Rs 7 lakh crore infra booster 

Asian stocks stalled on Thursday, weighed as Wall Street shares pulled back from record highs, while the euro stretched gains ahead of a European Central Bank policy meeting at which it could take a major step away from accommodative policy.

US stocks fell on Wednesday on a batch of soft quarterly earnings, with the Industrial Average suffering its worst day in seven weeks after rising to a record peak the previous session.

The sentiment may be dampened after a senior North Korean official said that  the recent warning from North Korea’s foreign minister of a possible atmospheric nuclear test over the Pacific Ocean should be taken literally.
